Free parking ends in downtown Glendale

August 22, 2011 |  8:58 am

There is no more free parking in downtown Glendale as of today, as the city reactivates electronic meters after technical problems.

The meters were suspended Aug. 11 and parking officers had to enforce time limits the old-fashioned way -- by manually monitoring the meters.

They will continue to do so for two weeks, the Glendale News-Press reported.

What exactly caused the failure was not yet known. A Police Department spokesman said a few drivers were erroneously ticketed because of the technical problems, but those have been corrected.
